Are You Brushing Your Teeth Too Hard?

Let's talk about the reasons WHY brushing harder is not better!

Scrubbing your teeth hard is NOT good for them. When it comes down to how to properly brush your teeth, you should only be using just enough pressure to gently massage the gums. Nothing more. 

If you scrub hard or use a medium to hard bristle toothbrush, you can actually cause gum recession or wear the tooth enamel away (something we call cervical abrasion.) 

Both of those conditions can pose some pretty significant challenges to your smile, so just resist the temptation to scrub. If you’re having a hard time breaking the habit, try taking a finger or two off of your toothbrush when you’re holding it.
